One thing I love about French Montana is he’s not trying to be something he isn’t. Dude keeps it one hundred 24-7. So it should be no surprise that French admits he’s no lyricist.

French spoke to Xclusives Zone, saying “Obviously I don’t be trying to get lyrical. It’s not a secret. I just make music. I love the feeling.”

His lyrics might not be as poetic as a Kendrick Lamar, Jay or Drake, but they come from the heart. “I wake up feeling f---ed up, I’ll make a f---ed up song. I will go through one thing that somebody else will go through and just be like, yo, my fans will grow to love me – ‘He’s going through what I’m going through.’ I feel like that’s how you get the core audience.”

French will have plenty of help to pick up the lyrical slack on his upcoming album, Excuse My French. The project is set to hit stores on May 21st and features artists like Lil Wayne, Drake, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Birdman and Scarface.
